Choosing modules and The Big Picture
For this week, I wanted to work towards the communication that I would need to have my kitchen toy in my Final Projectsend emails to the house when the food is ready. I consulted a lot with our TA, Will Langford (who's awesome, btw) and we discussed that there would be two main ways to do this:
I was able to get the Wi-Fi module talking to a website, both through the Arduino Serial Monitor and through the Python script. I also milled out a Fabduino that is now ready to communicate with the WiFi module. This next step would be to push the python scripts I was sending from my computer onto the ATMEGA328P chip on the Fabduino and have it execute on its own.
